Abnormal value or flow has been discovered
Please contact JEMAI (jemai-lca@jemai.or.jp) or post it to the MiLCA user forum. If you provide a draft for improvement for a specific item that seems abnormal, revision will go smoothly
(E.g., if it is pointed out like: "Maybe this data be wrong because in another referenced named xyz, the CO2 emission volume is stated as XX kg?" -- If there is no process data for that particular data, the cause cannot be investigated and we cannot revise or examine it).

I want to improve an existing process. (I want to provide new data).
Thank you very much! Please contact JEMAI (jemai-lca@jemai.or.jp) or post it to the MiLCA user forum. When contacting us, please provide the exported process data, along with explanatory materials that can be disclosed.
We hope to bring up the database with you!
If you provide your dataset to MiLCA library, we present you a paid license!

Limitation of the default inventory database
Please understand that assessment is about approximate numbers. Background data indicates average values for products with various specifications. In addition, much of this has been created from statistical references and models. Because accuracy varies depending on data, we cannot provide specific numbers, but it is not rare for values change by some - 10s of percents due to refreshed data.

Documentation of the default inventory database
Almost all datasets are available in both gate to gate and cradle to gate dataset types. However, information of data source is available in Japanese only. If you would like to know it in detail, please post your comment to the MiLCA user forum.

I do not know how to use the waste disposal process.
It will be assessed with registration of object for waste disposal on output side, and registration of corresponding waste disposal service on the input side (although the calculation result will be the same if the registration of object for waste disposal on output is not done, but to clarify the process input and output, registration of output side is recommended.

Please tell about the frequency of upgrades and the how to upgrade.
Without changing the result, bug fixes and usability improvements including minor revisions are performed upon occasion. If MiLCA is connected to the Internet at startup it will automatically check for revision information, automatically download the installer for the revised program as needed.
Upgrade of the Inventory Database is about once a year.

When purchasing a new personal computer (after crash), can the license be carried over?
It can be carried over. If possible, please de-authorize the old PC first. Then, install MiLCA on new a PC and authorize it to carry it over. In addition, if the license cannot de-authorized due to crash of the PC, etc., please contact the JEMAI (jemai-lca@jemai.or.jp). The license will be de-authorized, then re-enabled.

Is it acceptable to purchase a bundle of licenses and distribute these to stakeholders?
We control by associating 1PC with 1 license, so external parties may also use this. For the regular version, the only information required is on the contract person that performs the purchase procedures, so we do not collect information on the actual user. (For each PC that uses a license, the MACaddress is registered on a central server, but that is not information to specify a particular person or organization).
